Re: [IP] Re: Prednisone



Doug,

I have been taking Prednisone on a daily basis for more
than a year now for asthma control.  When I first started
taking it, I had to make some adjustments to the daily
amount of my long-acting/basal (Ultralente) insulin.  Since
these adjustments were made, I have had no further
problems.

Hope this helps.
